Botox procedures have become commonplace in almost all demographics. People everywhere are looking toward this treatment to give themselves a boost of youth and confidence. But please be sure to follow these six tips to ensure the best possible results from your visit.
Be sure to find a qualified professional to perform the procedure. Ask if the person is a board certified MD, and if they have experience with procedures such as these. Find out how many times they have performed the procedure. Be sure to research different physicians to find the right one.
Beware of advertisements for specials; remember that offering a lower price means someone is losing money which isn't something one wants to affect a treatment this delicate. It is always smart to shop around to find the best deal, but don't be lured in with super low prices or gimmicks.
There are several options as to where a Botox treatment can be performed. It is very important to have a treatment in which injections are given in a sterile environment. Recently, a new trend has become popular, groups of men and women gathering together to receive treatments in someone's home. This is not a professional treatment and should never be considered.
Ask around for recommendations from friends and family who have had the procedure done. Try to find a patient of any physician that is being considered through friends or through the doctor's office. Ask a lot of questions, for instance:
* Were you happy with the results?
* Did the doctor and staff make your visit as comfortable as possible?
* Did the doctor go over the possible risks and side effects of the procedure?
* Has the treatment lasted as long as it was supposed to?
Find a doctor who offers follow-up visits. Because treatment does not take full effect for several days or up to two weeks, it is important for the patient and doctor to get to assess the results. The patient will get the chance to ask any questions that arose after treatment. The physician will get the opportunity to ensure the treatment reached its full potential and perform any enhancements if necessary.
Finally, it is important to have open communication with the chosen physician. Write down all questions to ask during the consultation. There are no stupid questions. A patient should feel comfortable with the chosen doctor and should never feel rushed or afraid to ask anything. A good doctor will take the time to answer any questions and ensure that the patient fully understands the treatment, results, and any other important information.
